God is interested not only in our spiritual and physical, but also our psychological well-being. Worries and anxieties are common emotions. They are necessary for our survival, yet the Bible says that unbelief is evil, and commands us not to fear. Instead, we are commanded to fear God. This seems an apparent contradiction. So, is it wrong to fear?
Dr Leslie will cover various facets of anxiety & fear, the key among which are:
* The nature of fear and worry
* How the kiasu mentality came about and what to do about it
* How to pull down the strongholds of fear
* What to do when God seems absent
There will be a Q&A to allow you to address your queries.
